longer description below!
A printed, threedimensional illusion of a burnout velvet with a 'flames' design. Note that this is really an illusion print, meaning that it's not really velvet or burned out (but in fact printed on the type of fabric you pick from Spoonflower's fabric selection). The burnout velvet illusion has been imitated by digitizing tiny 'hairs' and adding shadow beneath them. Also, a slight color variation has been added to each of the hairs, imitating the 'glowing' appearance of burn-out silk velvet. The fact that the design has a shadow added to create the illusion also makes it necessary to work with it in a certain direction (because it would look weird if the shadow in the design would point "upwards" or - even worse - would point in many different directions on the finished gown. The design is currently set to repeat at 13.13 x 11.81 inches on fabric, decals and gift wrap - which is very close to the actual size of the pattern repeat on the original velvet! - and a bit smaller at 12.01 x 10.80 inches on wallpaper. As usual, if you would like to order this design printed at a different scale or in different colors, please don't hesitate to send me a message - I can quickly set that up for you. . I recommend ordering this fabric in Organic Cotton Sateen or in any of the Polyester fabrics, since the design will print most clearly (read: in the best colors) on those fabric types. If you were always wondering how differently colors print on the various fabrics that Spoonflower offers, please do have a look at my website where I have quite a few comprehensive photos of color swatches printed on various fabrics!
